Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin have one of Hollywood’s most iconic friendships, from when they first shared the screen in the 1980s 9 to 5. In 2015, their Netflix comedy Grace and Frankie launched, leading to an unprecedented seven seasons run on the increasingly happy streamer to cancel. While the show packed up last year, the longtime leading ladies couldn’t be stopped from performing again and will appear alongside Rita Moreno and Sally Field in 80 for Brady, which hits theaters this weekend. Next month, the duo will return to the big screen in Move on.

Fonda and Tomlin star as Claire and Evelyn, a pair of estranged pals who put aside their differences after the death of their mutual friend Joyce to plot the murder of her widower Howard (Malcolm McDowell). They have a mysterious grudge that has been simmering for 45 years, and now nothing will stop them, except killing a guy.

“My other kill was undone this week, so I have time,” Tomlin deadpans.

In their quest for revenge, the enemies will buy guns and plan to poison their enemy, in addition to stabbing them to death with a kitchen knife in broad daylight. Naturally, neither of them can actually proceed with the murder mission, and hijackings involving a flare, a cello, and a runaway dog ​​ensue.

In the process, Claire also reconnects with her ex-husband Ralph (Richard Roundtree), who may not be the one who got away after all. Although there are things no one can forget, forgiveness may not be so difficult after all.

Move on was written and directed by About a boy director Paul Weitz, who previously worked with Tomlin on Admission and Grandmother. His credits also include Mozart in the Jungle and American pie.

Move on hits theaters March 17.
